I had a chance to stop by at apple store today, and compared the anti glare screens on both 15 inch and 17 inch models. To my surprise, the 15 inch one was much brighter than 17 inch one. I made sure that both had max brightness settings, and it was clear that 15 inch one was superior. maybe this 17 inch display model was defect? anyone has opposite experience? (btw, I hate seeing myself and losing focus because of reflective glassy screens)
I bought a new Inspiron last week and got it yesterday - I am happy with it except feel a bit annoyed as I though wide screen of 15.6 would be the same as 15.4 normal screen in terms of height, but with a slightly wider screen.
It turns out that actually it is half an inch shorter! And 768 pixels high does not seem enough.
I looked into the 17inch model and for only £25 more I can get the same speced laptop.
Does anyone know how much I might get charged for returning the 15 inch to get the 17 inch (it has been within 21 days) ....
Apple will mail me a new 17 inch MBP unibody(Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66, 4G memory, 320G hard drive) and I found out that I like the 15 inch MBP unibody more (lighter yet the same powerful machine). Is there anyway that I can take it back to apple store and exchange for a 15 inch MBP?
I just got my sisters old macbook pro which is a late 2007 model with the following specs:
15.4 inch LED screen (1440 x 900) 160 gb 5400 rpm HD 2 gb of ram (the standard that it came with) - 667 mhz ddr2 sdram GPU: nVidia Geforce 8600M GT with 256mb CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 ghz (T7700) Superdrive: 4x DVD+R DL writes, 8x DVD+/-R read/write, 4x DVD+/-RW writes, 24x CD-R, and 10x CD-RW recording No applecare left on it Condition: Very minor wear and tear, but its in excellent condition because its been in a speck plastic case from day one with all the protective casing features below and kept in a neoprene sleeve when on the go Battery: there are two, one is absolute shot (as in it lasts about 1 minute before i get a low battery warning), the other is brand new and hasnt been opened yet Accessories: it also came with a brand new (not even opened) battery, a full body speck plastic case, rubber keyboard cover, trackpad film cover, and rubbery/felt like cover for the part below the keyboard and trackpad buttons, oh and a 15 inch neoprene sleeve...my sister is sort of a freak about protecting it............
I just received an email from dell to receive 25 % off my new purchase on a system over 2.6k or an accessory. So i wanted to order a laptop case this one in paticular [url]but im not sure wether or not it will fit anyone know?
Looking for a 13 to 15 inch laptop with a better than just good graphics card. I remember the dv5t coming with a 9600m gt but looks like HP pulled a failure card and now they have weak chips in the 15 inch models. I was hoping to keep it somewhat lightweight meaning under 6 lbs, but not sacrifice gameplay while it's plugged in and a decent battery life for mobile word processing and web surfing (no gameplay).
I'm going to defiantly get a MBP for school this fall the only question is which one I want as much power as possible my budget is 2000 dollars should i get. The new one with the 2.66 processor or should I get last models from the refurbished apple store. I need this to last 3-4 years.
I am looking to buy a macbook pro 15 inch very soon and I decided that I will buy a good quality SSD with it, i know its expensive but I think it will be worth it, anyways I was looking at the following two SSD and it seems that they have pretty good reading and writing speeds:
my question. which one is the better one of the two? and also I came across the following SSD, which states that it is a mac version!
I was wondering what is the difference between a mac edition SSD and a non-Mac edition SSD and will the above two SSD's fit into the new macbook pros and work properly?
Can we expect HP to be introducing updated laptops at CES? I am mainly intrested in the HP Envy 17 inch, think we will hear anything about it (if not when)? I want a new laptop (updating from my xps 1530), and will like a 17 inch screen instead of a 15 inch screen and thats why i am waiting for the envy to come out with a 17 version,
Does anyone play sims 3 on the new macbook or 13inch mbp? is it even playable? I've been wanting a mac for awhile now and since they have the free itouch till September i wanted to get it but not if you can't play sims3 on them.
i have only had my MBP 13 for a few months and thinking of giving my dell to my business partner. When i open the screen and then let it sit for a few seconds then attempt to open it a little more it squeaks and crackles sometimes like it was stuck in place. Does this happen to any of you and it is a problem that i should take it to apple for? Any solutions because it feels like i am going to break something sometimes when opening the screen a little more. Like a plastic rubbing against metal sound when something is too tight.
I'm trying to decide between a HP 6930p (14.1") or 8530p (15.4"). I would prefer a 14 inch laptop. However, the 6930p only has a VGA port; the 8530p has an HDMI port. Probably 50% of the time its in use, it will be connected to a 24 inch display (a Dell 2408wfp).
I am concerned about the difference in picture quality between the VGA versus the digital connection? In practice, how much difference am I likely to notice? I will be using it mainly for office type work.
I just bought a 2530p, with 1.8-inch 120GB hardisk. The partition is assigned as below.
- 101GB for C: - 9GB for D: (HP_Recovery ) - 1GB for F: (HP_Tools)
I would like to replace existing 120GB HD with larger one, and would like to ask some question.
1. what is the largest size of 1.8-inch hardisk for 2530p? I refer to "Service and maintenance information" manual, the hardisk size seems only up to 160GB, could I installed 260GB or even larger hardisk?
2. Is it neceessary to keep the partition of HP_Tools or HP_recovery? (if I delete the partition 'HP_Tools' or 'HP_recvoery', can the OS be booted up?)
